The UQ Anthropology Museum houses a wealth of artefacts ranging from household implements to diverse performance paraphernalia and musical instruments. There are water-craft, paintings, clothing, hunting gear, a large quantity of stone tools, including grind stones and axes, and some 1,100 spears and arrows.
The Museum has been actively acquiring photographs since its inception. The photographic collection includes images from the early and mid twentieth century and includes fieldwork archives and mission photography. It is an important resource for, among others, family research, visual culture studies, histories of anthropology, native title research, cultural history and post-colonial studies.
